on the radio. you can hear alan there. brad blakeman, deputy director of former president george w. bush. this is a comedy show. terror threats were out there six days publicly, brad. is this right venue for the commander-in-chief? >> that was absolutely the wrong venue for the president's first blacker remarks on one of the largest threats we face since 9/11. 20 embassies, assets of the american government were closed. thousands of personnel were displaced. we're not allowed to use the word evacuation according to the state department. according to the state department we didn't evacuate our assets. we had orderly departure. words mean something and when president speaks it means something. bill: force the departure was the word used. >> they had to leave within hours? bill: alan, the venue, were you okay with it? >> i'm fine with it. i think republicans have a lot more things to worry about whether the president does the do night show. -- "the tonight show." it is not just a comedy show. it also has people on all walks of life and, you know, to go after the president because he happens
feared nor respected. i'm not saying you go back to the george bush days and have wars that you can't win. but i am saying if president obama makes these statements, we're going to get those people who killed our people in benghazi and then does nothing about it. if president obama says there are real consequences to you, mr. putin, if you keep snowden and don't return him, and then we do nothing about it. if we tell iran there are real consequences coming to you if you continue your nuclear weapons program, and then we do nothing about it. at a certain point, leading from behind those guys stop looking back for orders, and they go their own way, and here we are. bill: you wonder if this extends beyond august. you have september 11th coming up in the first half of the next month and whether or not this stretches into that. kt, let's hope nothing happens. kt mcfarland on what we're seeing today. thank you. patti ann: new reports that a top u.s. diplomat met today with a jailed senior leader of egypt's muslim brotherhood. u.s. deputy secretary of state william burns apparently joining offic
for diplomacy and pressure is running out when we haven't even tried direct diplomacy. george bush and dick cheney must hear loud and clear from the american people and the congress, you do not have our support and you do not have our authorization to launch another war. martha: that was back in 2011. -- that was back in 2007 and now we are on the cusp of other action going into syria. a younger looking barack obama then senator now president. he always had at the core of everything he talked about, getting out of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. in the state of the union he talked about putting the decade of wars behind us. so what's your reaction to where we are today with syria? >> great disappointment. i supported him as an anti-war candidate. we had a surge in afghanistan. we went into libya. against the very thing he talked about in 2007. he has to inform congress within 48 hours of any kind of military action then he has 60 days after which he would need congressional authorization to continue a war. that started in 1973 and that was violated by bill clinton and ronald reagan. presi
chief of staff to president george w. bush and a fox news contributor with us from his home in austin, texas. you wrote a piece in the wall street journal, i know you've got a white board, too, so i'll get you to explain it. you call it the un affordable careless act. actually, that was a great line by the headline writer, but my piece was about the unintended consequences of the bill. president obama never sold the affordable care act to the american people by saying, look, this is going to create more part-time jobs in the place of full-time jobs, and yet that's one of big consequences of the bill. if you take a look at it, under the affordable care act a full-time worker is defined as somebody who works as 30 hours or more a a week, and if you work 30 hours or more a week, your employer has to provide you with health insurance coverage. now, this encourages a disincentive to employ people over 30 hours. the number of people who are working 30-34 hours a week has dropped 146,500 on average a month. the number of people working 25-29 hours a week has risen 119,000 on average per mont
in the state before the 2008 sweepstakes. we are 23 months earlier than george w. bush's first visit in june of 1999. bill: why is it this early? >> i have a theory. the political system makes a judgment as to when you are going to turn a page on the pathr president in his second term. the sooner i start to turn that page the more that activity ramps up. we have joe biden who will focus on his 2016 hopes. the senator from minnesota is going to make an appearance in the state. i'm thinking the political system is starting to say, president obama, you are in our second term and you are going to become a lame duck and it looks like it will bener than later. president bush's approval ratings in 2005 were slightly above were president obama's are today. but he was engaged in the system and the system was moving. the congress had passed thus far in 2005, a trade agreement with central america, the first energy policy bill in decade, a multi-year highway bill. it was the last time the president and the congress had a multi-year funding bill. bill: you are argue he was active and relevant. >> you me
aide and aid to president george w. bush and republican strategist. welcome here today. this is a tough story. it is a sad story and because the president did input himself into those other cases, leslie, that's why this question is being raised. >> no doubt but it's a story you just reported, martha, regarding world war ii veteran. i think that although it is disgusting anytime somebody loses their life, especially to a crime whether it is the hand of a gun or not which i think is definitely another issue and as we've seen statistically the violence, crime in america is down except among our youth. violent crime is up among our youth and something we have to address. when we lose somebody who is young, it is awful. the reason as you trail yaw made a comment, this is their citizen. the reason the president should make a comment people feel because of trayvon martin, the race card, this is a young man but i do think it is naive and unreal listic to expect the president to comment anytime there is victim of a crime. martha: of course it is. of course it is. >> with we care -- >> i underst
